Step Growth And Meandering In A Precursor-Mediated Epitaxy With Anisotropic Attachment Kinetics And Terrace Diffusion, Mikhail Khenner Dec 2014

Step Growth And Meandering In A Precursor-Mediated Epitaxy With Anisotropic Attachment Kinetics And Terrace Diffusion, Mikhail Khenner

Mikhail Khenner

Step meandering instability in a Burton-Cabrera-Frank (BCF)-type model for the growth of an isolated, atomically high step on a crystal surface is analyzed. It is assumed that the growth is sustained by the molecular precursors deposition on a terrace and their decomposition into atomic constituents; both processes are explicitly modeled. A strongly nonlinear evolution PDE for the shape of the step is derived in the long-wave limit and without assuming smallness of the amplitude; this equation may be transformed into a convective Cahn-Hilliard-type PDE for the step slope. Meandering is studied as a function of the precursors diffusivity and ...


Electromigration-Driven Evolution Of The Surface Morphology And Composition For A Bi-Component Solid Film, Mikhail Khenner, Mahdi Bandegi Dec 2014

Electromigration-Driven Evolution Of The Surface Morphology And Composition For A Bi-Component Solid Film, Mikhail Khenner, Mahdi Bandegi

Mikhail Khenner

A two PDEs-based model is developed for studies of a morphological and compositional evolution of a thermodynamically stable alloy surface in a strong electric field, assuming different and anisotropic diffusional mobilities of the two atomic components. The linear stability analysis of a planar surface and the computations of morphology coarsening are performed. It is shown that the conditions for instability and the characteristic wavelength and growth rate differ from their counterparts in a single-component film. Computational parametric analyses reveal the sensitivity of the scaling exponents to the electric field strength and to the magnitude of anisotropies difference.
